A Survivor’s Tale

Posted on February 12, 2010

“I was 11-years-old, came home from school and my father said I could not go back to school the next day,” said Anne Herrman, a resident of Greenspring Village in Springfield. “He said he and my mother could not go to work.” “At midnight in April 1939, my sister and I were taken to the train station by my parents,” Herrman said.“‘We will never see you again [her parents said].’” She and her sister had become part of Kindertransport, a program that transported Jewish children out of Germany.
